Multihead\015\012\015\012{{>toc}}\015\012\015\012On multihead displays, subtle fetches information about screens preferrable via XRandR or via Xinerama and shows exactly one view per screen.\015\012\015\012h2. Troubleshooting\015\012\015\012h3. Nvidia closed-source driver\015\012\015\012If you use Nvidia proprietary driver, you'll notice that subtle will simply not work if you try to use TwinView, in fact if you run xrandr, you'll see that the RandR extension detects one big screen instead of two screens\015\012\015\012The solution is to run subtle with the -n option (or --no-randr)\015\012\015\012
